Hammers fans react to City boycott threat

West Ham fans have given a mixed response to news that Man City supporters are planning a boycott of next week’s clash between the two sides at the Boleyn.

ClaretandHugh reported exclusively today that many are angry at the £55 cost of tickets and are planning a ‘stay at home’ Saturday.

So far, less than 2,000 of City’s 3,000 allocation have been sold and this followed last year’s boycott of the Boleyn leg of the League Cup clash.

Whilst some Irons supported the City’s fans stance others weren’t so enthusiastic towards their attitude.

Here’s a selection from our twitter responses:

@Turner131D  don’t blame them tbh. £55 for away is a lot of money.

@davidhattton96 I’m with them on this. £55 is an absolute joke

@wildman_paul The point being missed is that everyone pays far too much. If supporters adopted this approach things might get better.

@damo_84 Crying over one game. We get ripped off every week.

@steven52Lebeau If I can recall, our away match at the Etihad last season was £56 and £34 and club subsidised by £10

@OakleySean I paid nearly £200 for two tickets and travel to Old Trafford so get over it! Pay what you have to to see ya team play

@adielehay &Citah fans get their travel subsidised by their club and Away Fans fund. WHU only use AFF if tickets are not selling.
